Public holiday rates for the Christmas-New Year period

  

17 December 2021

The ANMF (SA Branch) has produced a comprehensive reference of public holiday rates for work performed during the Christmas and New Year period for public sector nurses and midwives in 2021-2022. 

Earlier this month we secured an agreement with the Department of Treasury and Finance to assure members of public holiday penalty rates on Saturday, December 25, 2021. As a result, we have varied the Nurses (South Australian Public Sector) Award 2002 to provide that nurses and midwives working in public sector workplaces will be paid 250% for work performed on Christmas Day and 200% for work performed on Monday 27 December 2021. 

The move follows the failure of the Marshall Government to support a Bill to make this year’s Christmas Day a public holiday which would have entitled members to 250% for work performed on both days.
